Carrie Fisher, Outspoken and Honest, Leaves Behind a Void in Mental Health Advocacy

27 December 2016 1:10 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Carrie Fisher’s death at 60 years old on Tuesday sent shockwaves through Hollywood, as fans and actors alike reacted to the news of her passing.

“We just lost a great ally for mental health and addiction,” Margaret Cho wrote on Twitter on Tuesday. “Be strong, be as strong as she'd want you to be.” Cho’s tweet was one of many to recognize the void in mental health advocacy created in the wake of Fisher’s death.

The longtime actress, famous for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise, was also a celebrated writer and advocate, who used her celebrity status to create awareness for mental health issues and addiction.

“I’ve been in therapy since I was 15 years old,” Fisher frankly told Et, later revealing to The Guardian that therapy was “my only serious relationship.”
